Modification Mondays: Gray Sky Meander

*Edit* Oops! I labelled the title of this post an FO by mistake. For those that are used to Mod Mondays, I'm sure you were not remotely confused. For everyone else, Sorry! Holiday Brain! This is what happens when you sit in front of the TV knitting and eating box after box of chocolates... your brain gets soft. Sorry! Ana did a fantastic job knitting this, don't you think?

Original Pattern: Meander

Knitter Extraordinaire: Ana (Rav ID)

Mods: Ana adjusted the sizing substantially for each of the 'scarves' and creatively reworked the way they join together to get a much better fit for her petite frame.

What Makes This Awesome:  The cardigan is composed of four plaited strips that combine moss, garter and stockinette, and then those are joined together to make the cardigan. To customize seomthing that is in as many peices as this is very tough, but Ana did an amazing job. She looks fantastic, and this cardigan looks so glamourous and rich with texture- utterly amazing.  I want one now, too! More lovely photos on her project page, here.

Wow, that is so cool! I wonder if you have to be as skinny as her to make it look good.

That is amazing! I've never seen anything like that before. And I love her styling! She is selling that look so hard - I know it would look terrible on me but I still want it!

To go back to the sweater for your mom - Stash dived, swatch knitted and blocked (more than one) and now I'm almost at the armholes for the back. Thank you. This one may even get done in time to wear this season!
